Tried a new stain today... A bit more reddish than the one Iīve been overusing last 2 years
I think I like it.

Anyway, tried it on the front...


This is a design for the footstand Iīve worked with during the weekend.
Since I have to keep the mothership unsullied, Iīll use the foot for an excuse to do something artsy
The illustration is based on circuit boards, in case anyone didnīt noticed




Then I painted certain parts off the main inside. BLOOODY RED!!


This is where I am right now, the finishing. Danish oil as usual Two days maybe...
The small pieces to the left are an idea I have for fixing that DVD-slot-mistake I made yesterday


I have like 3 weeks left, which means Iīm doing pretty well. This means Iīve got time for an associated monitor mod also

This is my old screen. Going to look into it more tomorrow

No update today, I just want to give some cred to all the people here... Iīm relatively new to the modding scene, and as a noob Iīve never encountered as much indulgence and humility as here. Iīm very proud of being among you guys! Big up for this nerd platoon!

Wow, nice little project! I love wooden mods. Hope the wooden monitor bezel is nice and thin ;-) Have you any plans for lighting the brass window?

Thanks friend! Hard to go thin with wood, but itīll be fine I think. No light on the window itself, but inside

Basic sketch for monitor. The idea is to have VGA/power supply through the "legs" as shown below. Could be too much work, but Iīd like getting rid of that cable mess...


Framework










Mmm... Lovely knags!


Bought myself a fine big screw in brass for the back mounting. Made two alu-fittings aswell


Something like this


Started working on a mock up for the fot itself, just to set the weights right

Love this new monitor case & stand, I've never modded a monitor before but think I'd enjoy it a lot when thinking of all the possibilities .

Wow, monitor looking great! Would it suit a slight bevel on the inside edge? I think it's a trick manufacturers use to make things appear smaller (well, on my Dell anyway). How are you going to mount the buttons?

Thank you!! I've never done this either. But yeah, monitors seems to have a bit of modding possibilities

Thans again Vo0Ds! I think a bevel WOULD suit, only problem is thereīs not much material to bevel on. Backside frame is like 2 mm Can show pictures later. Maybe I can do something similar. Ragarding buttons Iīve decided to use only the on/off switch and a led. They+ll be mounted in the stand aswell. Cheers

Wanted brass mesh, but couldnīt find any so brought my magic can


Golden!!


Also painted some of the mountings/fittings





Backside of the monitor


Underneath... had to use some real precision here. Lot to think about


Cut some pieces for the stand aswell


Made holes for VGA and C14 socket


Something like this


Feet parts with holes for housing lots of cables later. This is going to be tricky!


I was promised a set of 8gb RAMs from the Custom PC article I did some time ago. Havenīt seen them yet. I just hope theyīll show up in time for the upcoming birthday

If you don't need much power, how about a HD6450, they'll do everything but high res gaming (obviously). They're low profile, and Passive.

It was the 100th issue I think... Donīt know the date of release since I wasnīt able to get hold on a copy myself The MOTY was a bit of slap in the face yeah. Was told Iīd be a candidate, but hey, maybe next time. Canīt complain though, life is great

Thats a pritty neat idea for that monitor! I got to ask, was it difficult to do the disassembly of the old one? Just got me thinking of you could put 3 monitors side by side with almost no framework between them...
